Today’s Scripture: Isaiah 43:1-13
By: Aaron Tomes
You are no accident! Regardless of the circumstances of your birth or your present life, nothing about you has come about by accident or random circumstances. You were created by God, with a holy purpose: to glorify Him (see Isaiah 43:7)! He specifically and uniquely designed your personality, your spirit, and your body with a noble purpose—to reflect God’s glory in a unique way as only you are able. The reason we exist is to walk on the Jesus Way in such a fashion that God’s glory is seen, heard, and experienced through us—so much so that others are drawn to see, hear, and experience God in us.
It has been estimated that 108 billion people have lived on planet earth since its creation. And God has intentionally designed each soul—including you—for His delight and joy. Take heart! You are a great treasure to our God, your Creator!
He declares, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are Mine.” He watches over you and walks with you every day. He is both Guide and Protector: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”
Take a moment to thank God for creating you with holy purpose. Ask Him to help you reflect His glory as you walk through this day. Acknowledge Him as your Savior (vs 11), and thank Him that you are “honored and precious in His sight.”
